GERD in Baby 1 months oldHi Joe,
I've read a lot about you and some threads in Baby Center is referring to your website here in ABC Homeopathy.
My new born just had been delivered on Nov 12,2012 via C-sect, 2 weeks earlier at 34 weeks 5 days.
It was a miracle that everything was going well although the amniotic fluid was dried already.
The baby got pneumonia because of that but after spending 6 days in hospital, he could go home, one of the good thing that the doctor said that he has a very strong heart.
Everything goes well up to now and the baby weight has been increasing from 2.334 kg (birth) to 3.10 kg (Dec 4), and the doctor said he is in healthy condition and nothing is to be worried about.
Problem is our baby has the problem everytime he had his breastfed, he would spit and some of the milk came out from his mouth again and even his nose, he would enduring pain so much that he would arching his back, kicking, and punching his hands into the air and sometimes when he was sleeping, he was suddenly crying very loud as he was in an intense pain.
Many times after what had happened like that, he would passing gas, poop or some of the milk came out from his mouth.
After reading many informations, it seems that our baby boy is experiencing GERD - Gastro Reflux but the positive things regardless what was happened, his appetite is never gone, he is keep asking to be breastfed, my wife would do it almost continually and he would be in ease when he got breastfed.
Joe, what is the right dosage for our baby to consume Nat Phos 6x? Does he still need the Arnica also?
Please help us on this and appreciate your help, God bless.

The remedies that have proved to be very effective for Baby GERD are:
Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily. Half teaspoonful is a dose.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.
You will STOP all other drugs prescribed for baby which as you have already seen have not done any good.
Please confirm that you burp baby immediately after each feed.
You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.
You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that this remedy will also help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .
